Commentary on Fall 1904 move of BGG05-1:

England has "rewarded" France's ill-advised trust even while convincing Russia to trust him!

Did Austria purposely let Russia into Bul to block Gre's retreat? Why did he support Ven??

Russia's build will speak volumes about his future plans.

France has a good chance to prevent further losses next year due to England's paucity of threatening armies. However, if he starts convoying armys to Pic/Bel....

I suspect that Italy will now lose Ven to Austria.

I think that Turkey's position is slowly but surely improving.

Turkey
I tend to really dislike playing Turkey, because of the tendancy to get pocketed and have a slow game like that.

I'd almost rather be eliminated early then just spend year after year trying to get a 4th or 5th unit.

I'm having flashbacks to a game that was like that.

Well, yes, but Turkey is also easily defended and can take advatage of its adversaries' weakness when they fight. I've lost a lot of games to Turkey, but I never seem to play it well and get eliminated too easy. I guess patience is a virtue for a Sultan.
